Hey guys, what about the Powerball in Pennsylvania?  Can you claim through a blind trust in that state?  Thats where I get my powerball tickets whenever I play that game.

    You can create a blind trust anywhere. A blind trust is a legal entity and for the most part any legal entity can own property, whether it's stocks and  bonds, real eastate or lottery tickets. The only real quetion is what information the state will release to the public. Every legal entity, whether it's a trust (of any sort), a corporation, or an individual has the name of at least one person associated with it. For a blind trust the trustee is the legal owner. I would assume that  unless the lottery's rules specifically prohibit claiming trough a trust that the requirements to release a name would mean that the name of the trustee is what  would be released. There's a difference between releasing the name of the trustee and not releasing  any name at all. Only the latter qualifies as anonymous.
